OK, my board has DMI_BOARD_NAME as:

"nETXe-TT 1.0GHz E2 KDMS-FRI" but will also undergo a rename in the near
future. I'm concerned about colliding as I believe this kit may use the
same board you are working with. This COM Express module will be renamed
"COMe-mTT10" which will match your strstr compare.

So what does your DMI_BIOS_VERSION report?

I didn't like basing this on BIOS_VERSION, but I did so at Kontron's
preference. Now we're seeing the fallout (sooner than I expected).

So the question is, do we treat these as separate devices (the board and
the development kit which I believe includes your board) or do we lump
them together.

Since it is the firmware that ultimately decides what the initial
UARTCLK is, we can't base this on the hardware alone. The hardware in
fact should be default if a firmware match isn't found first. So, my
preference would be that you move your new comparison AFTER the FRI2
DMI_BIOS_VERSION comparison. This ensures the FRI2 doesn't match your
new comparison which might get a different UARTCLK in the future for
whatever reason.
